Description

What sets this Postpartum Doula training apart?

~ A dynamic, interactive learning environment featuring group brainstorming and discussion, role play, art-based activities, and movement... we have FUN!

~ A DONA-approved, evidence-based curriculum

~ A trainer with over 20 years of hands-on doula experience, teaching adult learners, and mentoring small business owners & new doulas

~ You will be challenged! We cover innate bias, crossing cultures, developing compassion, social justice issues, and how to handle sticky situations

~ You will gain the necessary skills to navigate many different postpartum scenarios, some of which are life skills that can be applied beyond doula work.

~ We will create connections that can last a lifetime, while offering indivudualized support as needed

~ Each workshop is tailored to meet the primary needs of the group while covering the information you will need in order to provide the best possible support to new families of all shapes and sizes.

~ This is an inclusive training that welcomes all family structures, races/ethnicities, gender identities and expressions, religions, and sexual orientations. Postpartum Doulas are needed in all communities!
